STÉPHANE STEEMAN & ALEX TRÉMISTE ET SES MENEURS, Le Temps Du Ja-Ja (Le twist du Brugeois)

theo-party-fronttheo-party-backfe-10758fe-10757I´m currently on a visit to Brussels together with the staff of Jungle World. Yesterday I bought this EP at a second-hand record store. I did not record the A-side Théo-Party, because I do not understand it. It´s a spoken-word piece by Belgian comedian Stéphane Steeman imitating Belgian Christian-Democrat politician Théo Lefèvre.

The political satire extends to the pseudonyms of the bands:  Alex Trémiste et ses Meneurs (Al Extremist and his leaders) and Fred Eralist et ses Fanfare (Fedearalist and his fanfare) . Likely the actual band leader behind those aliases was Belgian musician and composer Jack Say ,who co-wote the songs with Stéphane Steeman.

I like the two songs on the flip. No release date given, but sometime between 1962 and 1964  – when Théo Lefèvre was Prime Minister of Belgium.  Le Temps Du Ja-Ja has the subtitle: Le twist du Brugois – The Bruges Twist.
